Are there any side effect or complications of Shockwave Therapy

Complications of shockwave therapy are quite rare; however, it is important that a physician assess the patient’s injury and health before treatment begins.

How shockwave therapy works ?

scientists began to study the effects of high-energy shockwave therapy on soft tissue injuries. Both high-energy and low-energy shockwave treatments work by sending pulses of energy to the injured area. 
Shockwave therapy may be used to:

  • Increase circulation around injured soft tissues
  • Stimulate cells that generate new bone tissue and connective tissue
  • Reduce pain by overstimulating nerve endings in the affected area
